Aloy Ejimakor, the legal counsel for the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is hopeful his client will be victorious in court like the Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, also called Sunday Igboho.
He said his client would win in court at the hearing on Tuesday.
The High Court of Abia State is expected to resume hearing of the case today.
While speaking on the matter, the lawyer said Kanu’s case is similar to Sunday Igboho, so his victory is assured.
Ejimakor explained that the September 17 judgement of an Oyo State High Court which awarded, amongst others, N20bn in damages against the Department of State Services for the invasion of Igboho’s Ibadan residence and destruction of his property, was instructive that his client would secure victory before Justice K. C. J. Okereke of the High Court of Abia State today.
First News had reported that Kanu, through his lawyer on September 7, requested the court to award him N5bn as damages for the breach of his fundamental human rights which began with the 2017 extrajudicial attempt on his life in Abia, his involuntary flight to safety/exile, his abduction in Kenya, and his extradition to Nigeria.Kanu
